Happier snappers in the Dales

July 11, 2012

It was the first of our photography workshops this month. Local photographer Steve Finch, a great friend of the Trust, kindly donated his time and expertise to run a one day workshop to help people get to know their cameras and create photos that they can be proud of. It was also a great way to raise vital money for YDMT.

The day was spent learning photographic theory and techniques and then putting them into practice outdoors – in between the rain showers! The workshop is great for beginners and anyone who wants to learn more about their camera and how to take better pictures. By the end of the day there were certainly many people who were much happier and more confident about their photography skills. One attendee said: “Today has really kick-started me into doing more with my camera.” “I wanted to understand how to take control of the camera. After today, it doesn’t seem so complicated.”

We still have a few places left on our next photography course at the Dales Countryside Museum in Hawes on Sunday 9th September. Places on the workshop are limited to six people to ensure that you will get plenty of 1-to-1 tuition time. You can find out more about the course and book now on our website
